Latest Headlines

Phillip Danault (concussion) skated on his own on Friday morning.

The Canadiens forward hasn't played since Jan. 13 after he took a Zdeno Chara slap shot to the head. He's still going through the NHL's concussion protocol, so there's no timetable for his return. He'll continue to be day-to-day. The 24-year-old has seven goals and 23 points in 43 games this season.
Feb 3 - 9:36 AM

Jacob Markstrom will start for Vancouver Saturday night.

It will be Markstrom's first start since Oct. 9. He struggled out of the gate with a 4.02 GAA and .883 save percentage in three games, so hopefully the time off did him some good.
Oct 20 - 2:31 PM

Linus Ullmark will start for Buffalo Saturday afternoon.

Ullmark earned a 36-save shutout in his first start on Oct. 13. Despite that, he hasn't played since. Carter Hutton has gotten off to a somewhat shaky start, so there is an opportunity for Ullmark to earn some more playing time if he is able to build off his strong season debut.
Oct 20 - 2:27 PM

Pekka Rinne (upper body) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

As previously reported, Rinne left Friday's game with what might be a concussion. He probably wouldn't have started on Saturday even if he was healthy, but moving him to the IR list also rules him out for Tuesday and Thursday's contests.
Oct 20 - 2:03 PM

Curtis McElhinney is expected to start Saturday afternoon.

McElhinney has a 2.64 GAA and .900 save percentage in three contests this season. The start time is 1:00 p.m. ET, so remember to get in your lineup changes now if you need to make adjustments.

Cory Schneider (hip) is expected to start Saturday night in the AHL.

As previously mentioned, Schneider has been sent to Binghamton on a conditioning stint. Playing in the AHL will allow him to shake off the rust before making his NHL season debut. "I want to just see him get through a game and see how he responds to that," Devils coach John Hynes said of Schneider's upcoming AHL start. "Play 60 minutes, be in more read and react situations. We’ve seen him in practice but it’s important for him to play in a live game situation against another opponent where the score at the end of the game does matter."

Sheldon Rempal practiced with Ilya Kovalchuk and Jeff Carter on Friday.

Rempal also spent the better part of Thursday's contest on a line with the two skilled veterans. Thursday's contest ended up being a disaster for Los Angeles, but it looks like that line will stay intact. Rempal had four goals and eight points in four AHL games before he was summoned on Wednesday.
Oct 20 - 9:24 AM

There's a good chance that Ryan Getzlaf (groin) will play on Saturday.

Getzlaf took part in Friday's practice and skated alongside Isac Lundestrom and Rickard Rakell. Getzlaf has been out for five consecutive games due to the injury.
Oct 20 - 8:38 AM

Pekka Rinne (undisclosed) suffered an undisclosed injury in the third period of Friday's game at Calgary.

Rinne appeared to be shaken up after a collision, and he left with just under 15 minutes to go in a 3-3 game. Juuse Saros took over and was tested immediately at point-blank range after the officials did not allow him to take any warm-up shots. Saros was expected to start Saturday in Edmonton, so now he'll get a little warm-up before that outing.

Zach Parise scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 3-1 win over the Dallas Stars.

Both teams failed to score a goal in the first two periods, but the offenses came to life in the third frame. Parise registered an assist on Matt Dumba's game-tying goal (1-1) at the 9:37 mark of the frame and he added an empty-netter in the final minute of regulation to put the game to bed. Parise finished the night with a plus-2 rating, five shots on goal and five blocked shots in 18:33 of ice time. This was the 34-year-old's fourth multi-point game of the season already. Parise has two goals and nine points in seven games. He's off to a great start, but the biggest question mark will be his health.
Oct 19 - 10:43 PM

Braden Holtby was pulled after allowing four goals on just 11 shots during Friday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Florida Panthers.

Holtby was given the hook in favor of Pheonix Copley at the start of the second period, which seemed to give the Capitals some life. Trailing 4-1 heading into the middle frame, the Caps managed to tie the score thanks to three unanswered goals. The Capitals managed to tie the game, again, late in the third period, but they fell in the shootout. Holtby was not charged with the loss tonight. He has a 3-1-1 record with a 3.73 goals-against-average and a .881 save percentage this season.
Oct 19 - 10:33 PM

Lars Eller registered three assists during Friday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Florida Panthers.

Eller picked up the primary assists on goals by John Carlson, Jakub Vrana and Nicklas Backstrom. The Capitals were down 4-1 heading into the second period, but they managed to tie the score at four in the middle frame. Washington was then down 5-4 with less than two minutes remaining in regulation, but they managed to tie it up again. Eller finished the night with a plus-1 rating and two shots on goal in 16:21 of ice time. The 29-year-old now has one goal and four points in seven contests this season. He doesn't need to be owned in standard fantasy leagues.
